Where is the oldest continuously operating library in the world located?

Here are a few hints: It’s inside a monastery said to be built on the spot where the Burning Bush spoke to Moses, and it dates back to the sixth century.

If you guessed it’s the library at the Monastery of Saint Catherine in Sinai, Egypt, you are correct!

Learn more about the library, which can also boast of the second-largest collection of codices and manuscripts (behind the Vatican, unsurprisingly), in the Christian news website Aleteia.

And if you're in the mood for more bookish travel posts, For Reading Addicts has a collection of literary sculptures from around the world that you may enjoy.
